It is no exaggeration to suggest that one feels a building sense of excitement on entering the gallery display halls to regard the blend of ceramics on stands and tiles, large colour photographs in a ‘first light’ theme, and the hangings of Dot painted aboriginal art dominating the whole gallery. I confidently predict that this gallery will become a magnet for aspiring artists and for all who seek to understand the Australian journey to full acceptance and reconciliation.
We had the best two days at the Library. On the first day we painted onto a canvas, and on the second day we made jewellery. I made a bangle for my mum. She loved it.
I took a master class with Yuinart artist Lloyd Hornsby, and my painting was trully amazing. Thank you Lloyd for sharing your wealth of knowledge and for being patient with this fledgling or budding artist.
I would like to take this time to express how much of a positive impact Lloyd Hornsby has had with his Indigenous Workshops, not only with Indigenous Students at Undurba State School, but all of the students who have been lucky enough to be involved with these opportunities.
I have loved Aboriginal Art all of my adult life. It was a privilege to sit with Lloyd to hone my skills as an artist. As a non-Indigenous artist I paint landscapes. The workshop I did with Lloyd has taught me to be able to disconnect while I paint. My finished product is far superior.
